Following their foray into more affordable, accessible studio gear, the SSL 2 now puts the sound of vintage Solid State Logic studio tools into a powerful desktop 2-channel USB Audio Interface.
The SSL2 offers an incredible array of production benefits, stunning sound quality and clarity from recording any sound source, making it the perfect accompaniment for any project or home music studio.
With beautifully SSL-designed analogue microphone preamps and immaculate 24/192kHz conversion, the DNA of the SSL2 is geared towards uncompromising studio-quality recording. However, the SSL2 offers something a little bit more than your average USB Audio interface. It's equipped with Legacy 4K Analogue Enhancement and a High-Frequency EQ Boost for adding vintage flavour to dull, lifeless recordings.
Also kitted out with a pristine monitoring path and high-performance headphone amp for crystal-clear playback, SSL2 is ideal for reference monitoring, recording and tracking, as well as beatmaking and music creation.
Topped off with an intuitive front-panel with low-latency monitor mix control, you're always ready to capture the next great performance.
SSL has a history of innovation in analogue electronics and console design. Whether it's the sound of our classic EQ '242' and '292' EQ circuits, the punch of the legendary SSL G-Series Bus Compressor or the incredible bandwidth and sonic accuracy of our groundbreaking SuperAnalogue designed mic amps and consoles, we're always moving forward. Nothing highlights our dedication to the science than the recent Fusion and SiX product, where we have taken our analogue obsession to another level.
However, sometimes the raw sound of a microphone can sound a little 'uninspiring' or lifeless and you need something to bring it to life. This is where the Legacy 4K button comes in. Legacy 4K is an all-new analogue enhancement effect, inspired by the character of an SSL 4000 series console (often referred to as '4K'). With the Legacy 4K button, SSL have distilled 2 essential characteristics of the 4K sound into a single-circuit, which you can engage when you need to breath some life into 'boring' or 'dull' sounding input sources.
The first thing engaging the Legacy 4K button will do is introduce a 'forward', yet musical high-frequency EQ boost, something which 4000-series EQs are known and loved for.
4K consoles are synonymous with a imparting certain 'mojo' to signals passing through them. Using modern components, SSL have created a circuit that injects a controlled amount of finely-tuned, sweet-sounding harmonic distortion into the signal path.
